The picture to your right is from a play — a modern cabaret, performed in Australia, starring it’s creator, Sheridan Harbridge. It imagines Marie Duplessis’ last birthday.
I’d like you to know Marie. She’s all around. Marie Duplessis inspired me to write Blood Diva. She’s inspired paintings, novels, movies, plays, operas and ballets. Some of them take place in the time she lived, many are set later. If you want to know more about that or who she was, you can read up on her. I’ll try to keep this post mostly visual.
